Welcome to the UK, described by Lonely Planet in the latest UK guide as "simply one of the most beautiful islands on earth". You'll find that whilst people can appear flippant and/or sarcastic on this branch, it's only part of the unique British sense of humour so don't take it personally.

Please read this thread first before you ask a question, hopefully you'll find your answer already inside!

Feel free to add anything relevant to the thread too. Before we start though, here's some advice from…

So Brexit has caused the pound to fall to a 30 year low. And I want to help our neighbors across the pond by pumping some currency into the economy. I also want to take a trip of a lifetime, too. Me: I just got laid off and have a nice severance package, so I need to time this so I can maximize my money.

So, when is a good time to go? When do you think that the pound will have reached its trough? And what are the best way to make travel arrangements to take advantage of this turn of…

Thank you in advance for responding. Even though I can and do explore tourist guides, having your opinion is most useful. Is August top tourist season in Ireland, what can I expect? Iss it crowded, unpleasant. How would you spend 10 days in Ireland?

Thanks, Eric

I am staying near Lambeth North tube station. I plan to take a day trip to visit a friend in Biggleswade. I have checked online and the return fare seems to be £29.50. Does this fare include the tube ride from Lambeth North to St Pancras or will I have to use my Oyster card to pay for this part of the journey in addition to the apparent fare of £29.50 ?
It is my third day in London and I now think I have almost got the hang of London's impressive public transport system.

I know Edinburgh is known for its plethora of bookstores... And while I'm there in July for a couple days, I'd love to visit a few awesome, unique bookstores... I know some bookstores specialize in certain types of books.... I'm partial to art/ art history and nature/ animal books, in particular anything horse related... Any suggestions ? Thanks!

Hi all,
I've got a 12 day trip planned to Scotland this mid-July... I'll be staying at a friend's in Forres the majority of the time (house & horse sitting)... I've got my major transportation stuff sorted, but was wondering how easy it is to get around Forres without a car? I'll have a car hire for most of the time, but will be without that for a few days, so looking for how easy it is to get around (not just for things to do, but for getting to the grocers & back etc)... Specifically I'm taking…

Hello, Yonks ago I had a cheese omelet and chips for breakfast in a cafe near St. Paul's; I'd like to repeat the meal in the Kensington Gardens area. I'm an early riser so serving at 0730 or so. Any suggestions? Thanx.

Hi, everyone. I will be travelling to the countries mentioned above between the 1.–13. July. Need some help finishing my itinerary, and would also appreciate all tips and info, as this is my first trip alone. I'm from Norway, 19 years old and have travelled to much more «difficult» countries to be a tourist before, but – as mentioned – never alone.

My itinerary:
01.07.: Arriving Aberdeen Airport in the morning. Checking in to my Hostel. I want to visit Dunnottar Castle and Stonehaven after…
